Wi-Fi Security
Wi-Fi hotspots in public places are convenient, but often not secure. If you connect to a Wi-Fi network and send information through websites or mobile apps, it has potential to be accessed by someone else.

Encryption is the key to keeping your personal information secure online. Encryption scrambles the information you send over the internet into a code so it's not accessible to others. When you're using wireless networks, it's best to send personal information only if it's encrypted, either by an encrypted website or a secure Wi-Fi network. An encrypted website protects only the information you send to and from that site. A secure wireless network encrypts all the information you send using that network.  See More...
